and motivate those to turn out voters as well. >> how long is the democratic party the party of barack obama? when does that shift so it goes back to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as a president goes through a second term, interest in the president starts to go to the congressional wing of the party. what obama is trying to achieve for his legacy does not necessarily line up with what congressional democrats are interested in, in making a distinction between who they are and republicans. i want to reinforce democrats are not in as bad as a shape as republicans. the democrats really are not attached to obama like republicans were to reagan. when obama ran, he ran against the establishment of a party. he did not have a "democrat" on his bumper sticker. his identity was to be separate from washington. he did not campaign for democrats. his appeal is less transferable for democrats going forward than they did for a type of who had been elected like bill clinton. >> that is what becomes a case in the democratic party? >> you guys did a great job.
's position, he can't do a deal with obama on the budget or the tea party throw him overboard. chris: before we get this here, can anyone think we can establish and hold in this country a policy of containment, have the weapons, warn not to use them? >> no. chris: the syrian question, do you get a sense that we're talking about under this president, barack obama, of using u.s. forces to do air strikes? are we that close? >> two key political figures in the senate this week called on the president to create a no fly zone over northern syria, carl levin, a democrat senator and senator john mccain. behind them are a growing number of people in the state department, in the administration. i think the principle opposition of that is the white house and the president himself. when you have drown a red line, if the evidence is clear that the syrians have used chemical weapons, he is going to have to act, chris. you shouldn't make any mistake. he has to act. he doesn't want to. he is afraid of getting drawn in. you need to watch very carefully what they say about the evidence. >> he drew that red li
in the party and the candidates, but it should have done the nuts and bolts -- the outreach, the social media, the kind of ground game that obama had and republicans did not. it was lacking, and that is where it needs to recover, otherwise the game will be uneven from here until the end of time. >> colby king, i do not remember a case of self-examination to this extent in the past. >> you have never had the need for such self-examination. >> 1972, george mcgovern. >> they did do something after that. there was reform inside the democratic party, but in this case, i think they were right to look at the mechanics, but also they have to look at the other problem they have, the perception of the republican party. those focus groups put their finger on the problem. this is perceived to be a party that does not care about people. you do not change that by putting out fieldworkers to talk to people. that is not going to change it. it is not just a message, but the policy. why are people not responding to the republican message? >> you can have outreach, but you have to have something to outreach wit
proposed by obama almost like a parliamentary party was not reworded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was not reworded. calling the obama health care plan, which was their own only a few years earlier, socialism was not reworded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves, and importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition so that was an important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems, but there is going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice with one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> too familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norman borkenstein it's even worse than it looks. this is book tv on c-span2. >>> next, we hear from dina hampton in her book little red she profiles the graduates of the little red schoolhouse and elizabeth warren high school of new york city some ominous with progressive politics. this is about half an hour. [applause] thank you. i'm going to start by saying wha
who may have been on the sidelines with the party. >> it could help in the short term. of course we saw president obama and his campaign raise a tremendous amount of money from the gay community, particularly after he announced his support for same sex marriage. there is a question on who would be the biggest recipient? the party out in front of the issue? the democratic party versus the republican party which is kind of either starting to he will brace it, sitting on his hands or still opposing it. and make no mistake. the social conservatives still make up a very important part of the republican party. and they are opposed to this. >> and real quick, i have to let you go but i have to ask about karl rove saying he can manning the next presidential candidate, republican saying flat out that he is for gay marriage. his response was a question that he was asked, he said he could manning it. >> i guess you theoretically could. marco rubio could end up being that 2016 choice is against gay marriage. when you get to a republican primary season, when everything is on the table. there is
obama won that demographic by, they cannot win like that anymore and expect to win. i think they are moving forward on this you about i think the republican party as a whole has had really a death bed conversion and said, we can pay attention to other social issues but this is an issue that they are going to let go forward because they want to win elections and democrats, to their credit, are taking that opening and running with it. >> now, congresswoman, the pro obama group, organizing for action, is joining the push for immigration reform. their goal is to, quote, count to any opposition by conservatives to the current legislative effort with support from around the country. now, this is the obama ground game working for the president's second term agenda. can they succeed against the conservative opposition, in your opinion? >> well, i think absolutely they can and i think it's actually a welcome addition to the efforts that the president puts out with the bully pulpit but adding this grassroots component across every group across the united states to really bolster the p
to what he called the cookie cutter conservatism. you think that's going to help the party with young voters who supported president clinton -- sorry, president obama, over mitt romney by margin of 24 percentage points? >> i don't know that it does help or doesn't help. what i first have to get clear is what is libertarian conservatism? the two don't seem to mesh for me. you're talking about someone who is certainly against marriage equality but every libertarian, true libertarian i know wants to stay out of my life, and every social conservative i know wants to be in my life. i'm not really sure about the difference here. we're still talking about a guy who disagrees with the lions share of the civil rights legislation rulings of the '60s because he said they infringed on personal property rights. so i've got real dilemmas with rand paul and some of those issues that i think might play better with younger audiences. and i just don't see how he plays well. >> hogan, another republican senator making waves right now, another tea party darling is ted cruz of texas. in an interview over
that the party needs to showcase the diversity of opinion that is within its ranks currently. so think about it. young voters broke heavily for president obama back in 2008 when he did not favor same-sex marriage. it was only about a year ago that he evolved on his position. i don't think it's as cut and dry as one party is all in favor and one party is all opposed. i think republicans need to sort of highlight the diversity of opinion. >> how do you do that, quickly? >> i think you can have folks, pick someone like marco rubio, you showed a clip earlier. he believes marriage is between a man and woman but he thinks states should be able to decide what they want to decide. so he has taken this middle position. i think that's an interesting sort of -- it's neither black nor white on the issue that we can begin highlighting. >> let me -- we have -- rob portman, very publicly, i believe it was last week -- time flies in this day and age. very publicly came out and said, look, i oppose same-sex marriage, now supportive of it and mentioned his son, wil. middle son who two years ago told him he is ga
that either party have anything concrete for 100 million working poor. would pick it up. president obama promised $9.50 but 2011, he never mentioned it in 2012. because he did not mention it, the democratic practice of the party was that no other candidate would mention it because that would embarrass the president. they even muzzled people like elizabeth warren and chris murphy. the state of the union speech he mentioned $9 by 2015, going backwards. so, now there are bills in congress and the one that we favor, h.r. 1346, just introduced last thursday by alan grayson from florida, and it was entitled -- catching up with 1968. 1346. host: our guest is ralph nader, the author of the book 17 solutions -- the author of the book "17 solutions." to join the conversation and speak with mr. nader, for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. see theld you like to president called for in terms of minimum wage? you mentioned what he talked about now and what he talked about before. what does your bill do? when would you like to see it go? host: that
party is seen as caving minorities and poor people and it says young people are rolling their eyes more and more at the republican party. again, yes. but the problem is nothing has changed. when president obama nominated tom perez as labor secretary, accused him of being another hugo chavez. so much for speaking out for mine or at this. the next day reince prebius talked about the opposition of same-sex marriage. so much for reading out. the republican party has shown they may need what's wrong with themselves, but they are not going to change. this is "the bill press show." [ ♪ theme ♪ ] sister -- >> stephanie: well, good morning. what looks different about this studio? we're back from vacation. jacki schechner is here. how many times have we told hal put the newswoman away in the cabinet. make sure there's air holes in there and she has enough lettuce. >> i figured if i just stayed, you would keep me. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: wipe the cobwebs away. >> if i showed up, you couldn't turn me away. >> can i keep her? >> stephanie: exactly. ask your wife, jim
to earlier, three-quarters of obama voters said that they were for same sex marriage. three-quarters of romney voters said they were not. so there are people in the democratic party who, you know, support traditional marriage. i thought it was really interesting, by the way, this week. i thought it was politico went to a lot of the red state democratic senators on the ballot in 2014. people like mark prior of arkansas and others, mary landrieu in louisiana. they haven't changed their position. and i still think the republican party is going to remain a pro-family, pro-marriage, pro-life party. i don't think that will change. and if it does, by the way, i think the big tent will become a pup tent. if you look at the data, 44% of all the votes mitt romney got last november were from self-identified evangelicals. >> romney's data analyst suggests that republicans and independents who voted for the president who, by the way won, actually overwhelmingly support marriage equality and so this is a growing issue for republicans and independents. you know, again, i think the point da
democrats. >>> with president obama set to release his own budget when lawmakers return in early april, is compromise in the cards? new york's jonathan shay doesn't think so writing parties can't find the middle ground, because the middle ground doesn't exist. hmm, i don't call that optimism, josh. >> well i think first most important thing to note about these amendments is none are going to become law. because the budget is not going to become law. what part of the deal from the fiscal cliff deal a few months ago was that the senate democrats had to pass a budget in order to get a debt ceiling increase. they'll pass a budget. the house passed a budget. in theory what they're supposed to do is reconcile the two of them, come up with a compromise and make that budget the law. that's not going to happen, this was the end. this bill is going to die and there's no implication for keystone, excel, abortion or anything else. it's symbolic. >> quoting myself, it's a statement of priorities. and the fact that the republicans are still trying to litigate the issue of the affordable care act, st
. the parties mocked the government for believing [indiscernible] the phone call was a step forward. >> israel did not agree to turkey's call to in the blockade of gaza. roughly adapter president obama left israel, israeli police raided a palestinian protest camp on the outskirts of jerusalem. protesters had erected the camp last wednesday within the e1 settlement zone, which bisects the west bank and cuts palestinians off from their land more than 200 israeli officers leveled the camp before dawn on sunday. a palestinian lawmaker said he and four others were arrested. an earlier encampment on the same site was dismantled by israeli forces in january. the united states has announced it will transfer control of bagram prison to the afghan government today, the key details on the deal have not been disclosed. the u.s. was seeking to retain veto power over whom could be released from the prison, which human rights groups have dubbed the other guantanamo. in addition, the u.s. wanted assurances that certain prisoners would not be released even if they could not be prosecuted in court. in a central
in this country. when you look from president obama to president clinton to hillary clinton to rob portman to dick cheney, cleric mccaskill, jon huntsman. there are a tremendous number of federal officials, highly visible people in both parties. not only saying people should have this right, which is the moral position, but also saying something that i think creates an incredible opening for the public which is i changed my mind. people get in different ways. but that is also really different. in the civil rights era which is obviously the sort of historical precedent that people look to. the court was way out front. sometime in unanimous decisions like brown, in school busing, obviously in a lot of areas of extending rights to minorities. they were way ahead of both parties. you go back to the original civil rights raer and both parties were table because we lived in a completely racist, elite structure. and so the court was really one of the only elite institutions in the country that ran against that. while i understand the broader context, i think this is a supreme court that by that historica
. this is not some kind of conspiracy. in your opening you talked about how he was both offending obama lovers and haters. obviously he's doing his job. this is about demographics, that's all it's about. jon: jimmy fallon or his part has made controversial movesment back in november of 11 when he introduced tea party favorite michelle bachmann the congresswoman from minnesota and his band deliberately played called lying, and the next two words describe a donkey and a female dog, neither one of which is very flattering in their own right and when you get to the slang that they imply even worse. fallon had to apologize as a result of that. if that's the view alan of conservatives on that shoeut does say something doesn't it? >> i don't think the band choosing an intro song was wrong to do. there was an apology. i don't know that fallon had anything to do with that. that one example does not portend that jimmy fallon is a far left wing liberal and this is a conspiracy to get rid of a guy who appeals to liberals and not conservatives or vice averse a. this is not anything to do with liberals and
. what the report says, it's the same stuff the media was saying about the republican party during campaign. remember, media, myself and everybody else, we were all accused of being liberal -- having liberal bias and being proceed obama and in the tank for obama. when people pointed out, for example, that mitt romney's comments about the 47%. this report says the very same thing t at the time, we talked about how the romney campaign didn't have troops on the ground didn't have any really good database. this report says the same thing. the key is and tell me your take on this. 866-55-press. will the party change? will it recognize what went wrong? and will it change? i don't think so. let me give you three quick examples. the report says would havee have to increase our outreach to mine or at this. the day after the the report president obama nominates tom perez for labor secretary and rush limbaugh and says this is as bad as hugo chavez and another because he supports immigration reform. another example, the report says, again, we have to reach out t
